We all know that those golden, fluffy clouds of batter are the ultimate addition to any meal. Here in Yorkshire, we eat Yorkshire puddings as a starter, main and dessert – and we’d still be snacking on ’em throughout the day if we could. We can’t get enough of them. But has anyone ever had a Yorkshire Pudding with a Shepherd’s Pie inside? We know we haven’t, and we know we now need to.
So, when we saw that this amazing creation had gone viral on Reddit, we couldn’t help but shout about it. Reddit user u/terrymcginnisbeyond posted his meal to the CasualUK sub-Reddit with the caption “I present, Yorkshire-Shephard’s-Puddings.” Since it was posted to Reddit, it has gone viral with over 1,600 upvotes and a whole host of comments all admiring the creation.
We have to say it looks absolutely spectacular and it has two hearty dishes that have always been big favourites in our household. If you think you’d like to try and create this special little dish, the Redditor posted the recipe to the thread, and we have put it in our article for you to have a go out. If you do have a go, please let us know. We’d love to see it.
Shepherd’s Pie Recipe:
Fry onion and crushed garlic until slightly browned in a casserole dish. Add lamb and cook until browned.
Add a squirt of tomato paste, salt and pepper, and a little cayenne.
Then add lashings of Worcester sauce and a few drops of vinegar.
Add red wine and some lamb stock, 2 bay leaves and some peas and carrots, and some cornflour.
Then reduce for around 30 minutes.
Peel then boil Maris Pipers potatoes until tender, then drain.
Add a splash of whole milk, 2 spoonfuls of clotted cream, the sharpest strongest cheddar you can find, and a heaped teaspoon of mustard powder.
Yorkshire Puddings Recipe:
Follow the Yorkshire pudding recipe here (Or just use frozen).
When they’re cooked, ladle in the meat sauce.
Get a sandwich bag and cut a corner off the bottom to make a piping bag.

Place in a pre-heated to 180 C oven until the topping is brown.
